Build a Dog First Aid Kit

Safety First!

We always bring a first aid kit for our dogs when we vacation. When we're at home we keep it in a handy location as well. You can certainly purchase a ready made kit, but you can also make one of your own.   Here are some important items to consider including in your own.

Clippers or Small Scissors
Hydrogen Peroxide
Allergy Medication
Cotton Balls
Eye Wash
Anti-itch Spray
Ear Wash
Topical Antibiotic Ointment
Blood Clotting Gel
EMT Gel (Thanks Jodi!)
Cold Compress
Tick Removal Tool
Copies of:
ASPCA Poison Control Number ( 1-888-426-4435)
Dog License Number
Microchip Registration Number
Rabies Vaccination Information
Local Veterinarian Numbers and Addresses

  8. That is very good advice. I'll have to put one of those together for Duke although he doesn't do much traveling. He's a stay at home kind of dog :)
    Thanks for stopping by my blog today.

  9. Good advice!!!

    XXXOOO Daisy, Bella & Roxy

Short Rant

WHY is it that I regularly read about dog snouts being taped or clasped shut these days?!?!  I had never heard of this form of abuse for the longest time, but once I did, it seems I hear it regularly now.  Just surrender the dog to a shelter.  Stop these new, insane ways ways to inflict suffering!
